It is an independent forum for practitioners, policy makers, researchers, urban refugees and IDPs and any other person interested in urban displacement matters to debate key issues, share information and disseminate new ideas.
The idea underpinning this Forum is to establish a long-lasting platform of discussion where consensual ideas will be challenged, misconceptions dislodged and the overall debate on urban displacement moved forward.
In this respect, this forum was designed to facilitate and stimulate the debate on urban displacement issues among key actors. It creates the opportunity to share viewpoints and opinions that would otherwise remain silent, voiceless.

This Forum offers an online space for discussion and interaction between practitioners, researchers, urban refugees and IDPs themselves, as well as the public at large. Our intention is to bring together diverse contributors and commentators to ensure a rich and forward looking debate.
Urban refugees and IDPs throughout the world are especially encouraged to participate in these debates and to raise issues of concern.
2 main categories of issues are debated on this Forum:
This Debate Forum is operated by the organisation URBAN REFUGEES whose mission is to advance the rights of urban refugees and IDPs worldwide. URBAN REFUGEES was born from the unique collaboration between a refugee protection specialist, Sonia Ben Ali, and a communication expert, David Delvalle. Until now, we have been working on this project independently and we are currently looking for our first fundings. If you like this initiative and wish to support us, please feel free to contact us to discuss any funding opportunity: firstname.lastname@example.org
